You know it seem like to me that
Nowadays everybody's going around losing something
I told my love the other day, I said
"Honey, if I should lose you it'd be like losing the sun out of the sky"

Then I thought about it, I told again, I said
"Honey, please don't take my sunshine away"
But I have been noticing little things like
This right here

Yesterday my life, my life was bright and sunny
Today I feel like a bee that's lost all it's honey
Girl, [Incomprehensible] to face
Someone else has taken my place
Girl, if this is true, in my heart I'm begging you

Please, don't you take my sunshine away
Ohh please, don't you take my sunshine away

Lately you don't kiss me like you use to do
You shy away from my love, I've been watching you
Can we make a brand new start? Please say, yeah
And mend a broken heart, oh please, oh please
Please, don't you tear us apart

Please, don't you take my sunshine away
Ohh please, don't you take my sunshine away
Ohh please, don't you take my sunshine away
Ohh please, don't you take my sunshine away

Darling, darling, darling, darling
When did our love go wrong?
We been together so long, well
I can't stand the sorrow, I've tried to face tomorrow

Tell me where, tell me where
Did our love go wrong, go wrong
You got me holding, you got me uptight

Please, don't you take my sunshine away
Ohh please, don't you take my sunshine away
Ohh please, don't you take my sunshine away
Ohh please, don't you take my sunshine away
